    I'm sure BGC-Iowa-edition has tons of perfect flat slices around here somewhere he's just not showing, for some reason.
    I showed you mine, as requested by the gang.
    Now it's time for you to show me yours.

    Anyone's underwear in a knot over this topic??  Geez, it's just a hunk of protein.  But it does have quite the draw on a Monday PM.  
    It is a controversial bugger for sure. It's kinda like a Friday - Saturday feel with the glorious holiday and what not. Cheers friend!
    It's only controversial for one. Everyone else seems to be ok with it. 
    Uh, I bet there are plenty of others. They are likely intimidated by the forum gang. Lol. The reach is vast. 
    There's really only one guy who openly shîts on brisket consistently. May be other struggling with the cook, but one dude seems to think cause he doesn't like it, or can't cook it, no one should like it. One guy.  
    Well I've seen and eaten his food and it is phenomenal. A true perfectionist. I think he truly doesn't think the end result is worth the effort. Hey, I cook a few briskets a year and am happy to do so, but I totally can appreciate his view as well as those of the pro brisket crowd. As most things in life it comes down to perspective and priorities. He clearly feels his time and effort is better servered by cooking awesome dishes other than brisket. Everyone knows that you can do everything correctly and end up with an OK result or even worse. To each their own. 
    This thread has taken a turn that is actually hilarious.  I'm just getting this vision of @Focker texting @pgprescott  "Hey, check out the forum.  I'm trolling the brisket nerds again."


    Now that's funny! I bet @Focker is enjoying the trolling, but there is no "collusion"!

    Totally agree, "the gang" thinks they are the only ones.  
    But they struggle to think, independently.

    Nobody's crying.  I like being ganged up on, it's fun.
    I don't care about the push back.  You won't see me buying a packer soon.  But I'm crying, and negative because brisket is the sh!ttiest cut you can buy at the meat counter.  Come on man.

    It's not negative CT.  It's truth.
    If you can't handle this, you may be the one with the mangina....just sayin'.

    Perfectionist? He should have gotten a cease and desist letter from Shun for this hack job. 


    Please show me how to cut open a hard boiled egg. Lol

    Perhaps he was expecting something more like this



    Not mine, just something I found in 3 secs, cause I'm too busy trying to figure out how to nail a brisket.
    Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....

    The deviled egg cut, very nice work!

    Mine was the slice it open to show no overcooked ferrous sulfide ring cut.  That is all.
